Roof Rat vs Norway Rat Control Oakville

The most common species of rats that are found in Oakville and surrounding areas are the Roof Rat and Norway Rat. These two species of rats differ greatly in their preferences in terms of habitation. For one, the Norway Rat is most commonly found on the ground level. They often find their way into garages and can remain undetected for very long times. They can cause fire hazards along the way which can include damaged wiring, cabling, and other items that are scattered in the garage.

Roof Rats on the other hand are the opposite. These rats thrive above the ground by climbing to more elevated areas and floors of the house. These rats are amazing climbers and can conquer any height without any issue. They can often be found in attics. By being in attics, they can contribute to the degradation of insolation material which can cost homeowners thousands of dollars in repair costs alone. Not only that, both the Norway and the Roof Rat can


The Main Differences Between Rats And Mice

Rats are rodents move with stealth in mind. In contrast to the house mouse, rats are more destructive and prefer the great vast outdoors. Mice on the other hand are curious in nature and like to explore anything new, but remains cautious despite his love for the unknown. Mice have a preference for cereal, nuts, berries, and grains. Mice are fascinating creatures, but also destructive. They will go around the house and collect paper and cardboard which they use to make their nest with. Seeing shredded material or bite marks is a red flag. Rats on the contrary are more likely to stay in secluded areas. Rats are imposing rodents That is why, when you see a rat, make sure to stay away from it. Mice are nocturnal rodents which means they stay active from dusk till dawn. You can hear them nibbling and you can hear a faint rustle when they are moving about. Considering that these rodents are so active, it is strange to imagine that these mice have bad vision. One clear indication of rat presence is droppings which are a more oblong shape and is much bigger in size than mice droppings which are usually the size of a grain of rice. Because rats are outdoorsy in nature and most of its activities take place there, rat burrows can be found around the yard.

When people first suspect a rodent presence, it is usually by hearing these rodents nibbling. When they move you hear a slight thumping sound as they make their way from one side to the other side. As they inspect the matter more closely, they might stumble on bite marks, droppings, and chewed through materials throughout the house. their suspicion is now becoming more concrete. They go to their local hardware store and buy products based on the clerk’s recommendation and come back with repellants, traps, and bait. After one catch or two the problem seems resolved, but not until long…

The rodents come back and that means another trip to the store losing more money each time they go. After exhausting all their resources, they slowly come to realize that this was indeed counter-productive. This is where professionals need to step in. Technicians are licensed professionals by the Ministry of Environment in Ontario. This accreditation allows professionals to buy and deploy truly potent formulations that are effective. Not only that, technicians have years of experience and are specialized to seek out various pests and are well-acquainted with the behavioral and breeding patterns which makes eradicating them from your property so much easier. In addition, technicians can prevent any future infestations by proofing and sealing previous entry-points that the rodents used to gain access to the property in the first place along with any newly discovered entry-points that seem prone to intrusion.

What Attracts Rats and Mice To Your Yard and Home

Many factors are at play when figuring out why rodents are attracted to your property. Rats and mice flock to your home primarily for shelter. By being in a warm and secure place, it can give these rodents the chance to thrive. This combination is a very good incentive for rodents to start building nests and eventually give birth to offspring which can go on for generations. The abundance of water also seems to be a determining factor in attracting rats and mice to your home as leaky pipes make up for good sources of water to quench the rodents’ thirst with ease. The diet of the rat is far from specific and are known to consume feces, eat from dumpsters, and our trash cans. What might be trash for you is a full multi-course buffet to the rat. If the diet was not enough bad news, rats and mice are known carriers of diseases such as salmonellosis, leptospirosissis, and tularemia and being the cause of the infamous plague, just to give you an idea what they have in store.
